A chair is just a chair and a desk is just a desk, right? Wrong! In fact, your office furniture has a very real influence on:
• How your workspace functions, and
• On employee productivity, itself.
Here’s how a change of furniture can make a real impact on your company’s bottom line.
Clear, easy communication is the lifeblood of a productive company:
o It supports the sharing of ideas, and
o The creative energy that is the hallmark of innovation.
Hot-desks assist with collaboration; more casual open spaces promote brainstorming.
Being uncomfortable at your desk is a sure way to sink your productivity. Ergonomic desks and chairs not only assist with feeling more comfortable while seated during work hours, but also promote good health – which means less sick days spent at the physiotherapist!
Everyone is different, so why give all your employees the exact same desk and chair combination? Offering a variety of options may sound expensive, but not if it’s done the right way. Do some research with your team and see if they prefer seated or standing desks or if they prefer partitioned desks to office cubicles. This will help narrow down your choices and make your employees feel valued. And if you’re still not convinced, the fact that studies have shown employees to be far more productive when given the choice between sit or stand desks should help you make your decision.
Lighting is often the last thing people think of when considering their office space, but it’s incredibly important. Well-lit rooms make it easier to see and focus for hours at a time. Natural lighting helps to:
o reduce eye strain,
o boosts mood, and
o has a positive impact on well being – as well as your energy bill.
Having a space dedicated to taking a break may sound counterproductive. However, studies have shown that short, relaxing breaks boost long-term productivity and make employees feel valued. Comfortable couches, a Foosball table, and kitchen space for breaks are just some ideas for a more productive office space.
